Two-Hour Series Premiere Wednesday June 13 at 9/8c
Dallas is an upcoming American drama television series that revolves around the Ewings, a wealthy Texas family in the oil and cattle-ranching industries. The series will not be a remake of the original series of the same name that aired on CBS from 1978 to 1991, but a continuation of that series. It will focus around John Ross Ewing III, the son of J.R. Ewing, and Christopher Ewing, the adopted son of Bobby Ewing. It is in development for TNT, sister company to Warner Bros. Television, which owns the original series since its purchase of Lorimar (Dallas's original production company) in 1989.
On July 8, 2011, TNT gave a greenlight for the series with a 10-episode order, which will premiere in summer 2012.
Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray will reprise their iconic characters from the '80s soap, while Fast Five star Jordana Brewster and one-timeDesperate Housewives castmates Jesse Metcalfe and Brenda Strong will join them. Also joining the cast is Josh Henderson.
